It’s official! The education pack accompanying the film adaptation of Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, has now been released across the UK. The pack contains a series of short clips taken from the film which highlight the complexities of trying to balance the three pillars of Sustainable Development: Society, Economy, Environment. The videos are powerful examples of how people from all walks of life and countries are trying to create change for the better, and are supplemented with a series of questions designed to encourage critical thinking and challenge current assumptions.
At our recent Youth Policy Forum, we trialled one of these activities with a group of around 60 young people. Its focus was on the conflict between the finite resources of the planet and the current push for growth. Overall, the response was extremely positive with the majority of the participants (aged from 10 −25 years) engaged and stimulated by the topic.
